The BRADLEY mentioned in the comments wasn't me - never had Dacre Brown a form master. Dave Garswood. Could you be the same Dave Garswood who travelled on the 54 bus to Leigh? Remember the day we accidentally pulled the tie off a Convent girl's hood, she squealed, Peter Hulme the then (hated) head boy who also travelled on the 54 got to know, reported us to Bill Brace who administered three strokes of his cane to our trousered behinds. Happy days.
